Taking a Day2Pray is simply a day to intentionally set aside time to pray, wherever you are, for those in authority- for our President, members of Congress, our Governor, the State Senate and House of Representatives and our State court system. These elected officials have been placed in leadership positions and are daily in need of prayers for wisdom and guidance.
Along with our elected officials, pastors have a great deal of leadership in Pennsylvania. They care for and equip the Church to be witnesses that will change the world. Their leadership is driven by their personal commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and to the Word of God.
From 2 Timothy 3:16-4:4,
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
We thank pastors around Pennsylvania who preach the Word. We thank them for the work of their ministry and for edifying the body of Christ (Eph. 4:12-13).
Please pray for your pastor(s) and pastors around Pennsylvania. Pray for their steadfast leadership to their congregation and community. Pray for their families and their marriages that they will be strengthened and remain faithful to each other (1 Cor. 4:2).
Pray that pastors will continue to preach the word and challenge the body of believers to be living sacrifices; to be a city on a hill in spreading the good news to the world around them.
Day2Pray is simply an encouragement to intentionally set aside time to pray, wherever you are, for our state, our nation and the leaders elected to serve us.
